The beautiful spot of thousands of little islands, some hollow, some featuring caves, and some being a home to several small villages, Ha Long Bay is available for visits throughout the year.

However, the most comfortable period for visiting the bay is from mid-autumn to mid-spring.

Keep in mind,​ though, that during the winter months it may get really cold and the visibility may be hindered by fog, which, on the other hand, creates the gloomy but fascinating view on the bay. Summer is mostly not recommended because it has a ​high probability of bringing storms and high temperatures to the area.
